Attention Champions Cup Managers
Before you register your team for the 2012 Champions Cup, please note there is a significant addition to the tournament. There are now two divisions in which a team may compete. In addition the traditional competitive division that the tournament has consisted of in the past, now called Premier Division, a new division has been added to the tournament called the Super Group Division.
When you register you have a choice of which division you want to compete, so read the descriptions carefully to be sure that your team is competing at the appropriate level.
The teams in this division are the same caliber of teams that have competed in past Champion Cups. Age groups accepted are U8 – Adult boys and girls. Teams in this division are:
Very competitive with skilled - very skilled players
Teams that play in a futsal league and will use all or most of their current league futsal league roster to play in the Cup.
They would not be classified as hand picked all-star teams.
Outdoor teams that are in the top of their leagues, but are not playing against academy or elite level teams
Where appropriate, there will be Premier Level 1 and level II brackets
The teams in this new division would seek the highest competitive level of futsal possible. Age groups accepted are U10 - U18, boys and girls. Teams in this division are:
All-star team put together with the specific purpose of playing the highest level of futsal possible
A team that does not play futsal, but consist of elite / highly skilled players
Teams that consist of players who are on their club’s academy or highest level team
Outdoor teams that consistently compete for their state titles.
Teams in the Super Group must be accepted by the Cup Committee. Teams are urged to include information in their registration regarding the make up of their team, outdoor record and futsal history
The committee has the sole authority in making this selection and/or inviting teams at their own discretion.
For both divisions, the USYSA age groups will apply. See chart in Tournament Rules
